Roads to Success

Using a collection of narratives composed from stories shared by UIowa STEM professionals, I hope to explore the barriers to success that people have faced and overcome along the way. Upon the completion of the narrative series, a statewide writing contest will be open to all high schoolers. Students will engage with STEM professionals within their own community and craft an essay about the stories they hear, using the narrative series to help guide their writing.
